New data protection legislation registered

16 February 2018

The Royal Court has today registered new data protection legislation that will strengthen individuals’ rights and enable Island businesses to continue accessing international markets.

The registration of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 and Data Protection (Authority) Jersey Law 2018 follows recent Privy Council approval. The new Laws will come into effect on 25 May 2018. 

The new Laws were unanimously agreed by the States Assembly earlier this year and will enable data to continue moving freely between Jersey and the European Union. This will benefit trade and help law enforcement agencies cooperate with their counterparts in other jurisdictions.

The Assistant Chief Minister, Senator Paul Routier MBE, said “this is an important milestone for Jersey. The new data protection regime will bolster the rights of Islanders, ensure equivalence with the EU and further our standing as a trusted place to do business.”
